About MCAD Online Learning

Most online courses at MCAD are asynchronous, meaning you will not have set class meeting times. Instead, courses are project-based with two to three deadlines per week, and you can choose a time and place that works best for you to complete your work. Course activities may include readings, video demonstrations and tutorials, discussions, projects, and critiques.
